Ju­nior Sharks

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE fi­nal week of com­pe­ti­tion for the Sharkies saw the un­der-7s play Scor­pi­ons at home. An un­der­manned Scor­pi­ons side led to some of our lit­tle fel­las play­ing for the op­po­si­tion. Even this did not help the Scor­pi­ons, as the Sharks ran in five tries to their two.

The fi­nal score was 20 - 8. Try scor­ers for the Sharks were De­clan Wil­liams, Brax­ton Wienert (2), Matthew Graves-Bo­chow, and Lafe Hat­field. Man of the Match was awarded to Luke Twomey for a great at­tack­ing game. The coach’s award went to De­clan Wil­liams for bust­ing through strong de­fence to score an awe­some try. Over­all, the un­der 7s have had a re­mark­able sea­son dis­play­ing great sports­man­ship and team spirit. The un­der 7s coaches Matthew Hat­field and Earl Os­borne have put in a big ef­fort each week, and their ded­i­ca­tion to train­ing and games has been much ap­pre­ci­ated by the un­der 7 play­ers and par­ents.

Un­der 8s had no op­po­si­tion team to play for their fi­nal game of the sea­son so took to the field against each other and had a great fun scratch match.

In Un­der 9s, Cen­tral Scor­pi­ons took on the Sharkies in a great 20 min­utes of foot­ball. Da­mon Wes­sells played for the Scor­pi­ons and did a fan­tas­tic job in tack­ling his team­mates which brought smiles to all on the field. Kalepo Tusa was on fire, run­ning in three tries, with one full field run dis­al­lowed af­ter he dropped the ball on the try line. Billy, Tom, Joe, Josh and Zeck were all on fire with their tack­les and run ups. Jay­den im­proved fan­tas­ti­cally and came up with seven tack­les. Man of the Match for be­ing a great sports­man was Da­mon Wes­sell­sIn the sec­ond 20 min­utes, Yarrabah came to play the Un­der 9s. For the Sharks Josh and Kalepo scored one each. Tom put in a great ef­fort in tack­ling and run­ning. Man of the match for was Kalepo Tusa.

The un­der-11s had a bye this week as no op­po­si­tion team was avail­able. The whole club is be­hind the un­der 11s team and coach­ing staff as they en­ter the fi­nals run.

The 12s won 50-0 against Yarrabah, set­ting them­selves up for a grand fi­nal qual­i­fier again against arch ri­vals Ed­mon­ton Storm. The lo­cal boys go into the game in great form with seven play­ers com­ing off the bench. Ev­ery mem­ber of the team is do­ing their job to the best of their abil­ity. Man of the match per­for­mances from ever re­li­able Fraser Cot­ton, Locky Cowe and Jack Dick­son set­ting the plat­form to to­tally out­class the op­po­si­tion.
